Zwar halten manche Forscher daran fest - und das ist auch ihr gutes Recht - zu versuchen, einmal Erarbeitetes mit neuen Methoden oder durch ergänzende Befunde zu bestätigen und zu erhärten, im Grunde geben sie aber durch ihre weiteren Arbeiten zu - und sie sind auch darauf gefaßt -, daß jeder einzelne Befund, jede Grundlage und jede entwickelte Hypothese sich als falsch erweisen kann. Diese skeptische Grundhaltung der Forscher gegen über den Ergebnissen der Wissenschaft rührt daher, daß sie einerseits nicht mehr glauben, sich mit Hilfe der Wissenschaft jemals der Wahrheit direkt versi chern zu können, andererseits können sie Glauben im Sinne des Fest-für-wahr Haltens in der Wissenschaft nicht gelten lassen.
